Officials at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School began issuing the donated backpacks to the school's 3,200 students Monday, The Sun Sentinel reports. "No matter how much we tell them to listen to us there will always be a backpack manufacturer saying, "Hey they need clear backpacks, we got you covered, or a Barricade Renter saying, "Hey do you need any extra fences that will create the illusion of safety but are easily jumpable and make all the students feel like a combination of prisoners and livestock?"
Senior Carmen Lo also sported the price tag on her backpack and additionally put a sign inside that read, "this backpack is probably worth more than my life". Now, with the bags, they're sacrificing their privacy for what he and others consider an ineffective security measure.
"As much as I appreciate the effort, we as a country need to focus on the real issue instead of turning our schools into prisons", Ms Hogg wrote. Some students said they're missing the point.
Requiring students to wear clear bags to school isn't uncommon and the rule has been enforced in quite a few schools across the U.S. in response to youth bringing weapons such as guns and knives to class. There are a lot of great plans on paper, but implementation is just not feasible. "It's awful that girls will have no privacy concealing their feminine products, and these bags won't last a week with real textbooks in them".
The school district said it's considering whether to install metal detectors at the school's entrances.Читайте также: All the references made to Ant McPartlin's absence from Saturday Night Takeaway
Morgan said while she is thankful for the traction of the Never Again Movement and the work she and her peers are doing to tackle gun reform, she added an important element of that is to hear the stories of people who survived the mass shooting and other forms of gun violence.
Clear backpacks may deter some from bringing weapons into school, but without metal detectors people can still hide them in folders or in between papers, junior Isabella Pfeiffer said. It would not have prevented the February 14 rampage, because the gunman was not a student. "But it made me feel better because we all looked the same".
"You know it's only hard because if we were being listened to and common sense gun legislation was brought into play we wouldn't need all of this to be safe".
Junior Cameron Kasky tweeted a photo of his clear backpack full of tampons Tuesday as a comment on the measure.
But despite the outcry on social media, teachers "for the most part" have embraced the policy, said Greg Pittman, an American History teacher at the school of about 3,300.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
